I have launched a campaign to celebrate the “Corona Heroes” who are working so hard to keep people safe, supplied and supported in Harlow, amid the outbreak of Covid-19.
I’ve teamed up with a local children’s safeguarding charity, The Safeguarding Alliance, to recognise the individuals, not-for-profits and businesses that are on the frontline delivering care, keeping services running and providing vulnerable residents with food, supplies or someone to talk to over the phone.
So, if you know a Corona Hero, head to The Safeguarding Alliance, send them a photo of your nominated Corona Hero with a description of what they are doing and we will thank them.
At a time when we cannot show our appreciation in person, I thought it was so important to give these incredible Corona Heroes the recognition they deserve.
Over the past few weeks, our Harlow community has come together like no other to help those in need, or contribute to the national effort to overcome this pandemic – from businesses, charities and faith groups, to volunteers, emergency services, supermarket workers, waste collectors and, of course, our NHS frontline staff.
It’s great to share some positive news stories and I’m thrilled to be able to bring Corona Heroes to Harlow with The Safeguarding Alliance.
